Iím trying to conduct an EFA in Mplus using data that I have multiply imputed in an external program, and also accounting for complex survey design (stratum, cluster, weights). I have tried using the data as both a .dat file and a .txt file, and also using single concatenated datasets as well as 10 separate data files. I continue to get error messages, most often stating something like:
*** ERROR in DATA command A data file for TYPE=MONTECARLO or TYPE=IMPUTATION cannot be found. Check that this file exists: sampleid secu str finalp1wt HR39 _mult_ HR41A_r HR41B_r HR41C_r HR41D_r HR41E_r HR41
My code is below. Do you have any suggestions? Or do you think the problem is in what Iím doing in SAS to export the file? Thank you.
DATA: File = imputed_forMplus_V6.dat; Type = Imputation;
I get the following error message: "*** ERROR in DATA command The file specified for the FILE option cannot be found. Check that this file exists: IMPUTE_SEP1.txt IMPUTE_SEP2.txt IMPUTE_SEP3.txt IMPUTE_SEP4.txt IMPUTE_SEP5.txt IMPU"
